. >> thank you very much. both mitt romney and barack obama have suspended their schedules just days before the voters make their choice. for more on the storm's impact on this race, i'm joined by the bbc north america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think peo
counts for both tickets. obama is campaigning in virginia and colorado earlier this week. romney, well, he's cancelled his debates in virginia and he's on a bus tour of ohio. so mitt romney has now an important endorsement out of iowa. the des moines register has chosen romney because they say it's all about the economy. it marks the first time in 40 years that the newspaper has backed a republican and the presidential general election. meanwhile, president obama has added the "new york times" to his endorsement column, the editorial page listed obama's achievement like saving the auto industry and health care reform as reasons for the endorsement. it he has not backed a republican since dwight eisenhower. >> ohio considered quite the price that could win either condition dat at the house. >> obama is scheduled to leave washington, he's not scheduled to leave washington today in fact he's staying close to the white house because of this storm. >> in newest poll in the state of ohio says mitt romney may have condition to be concerned. as we have said, it's a close rate there, we have as
the election day, president obama and mitt romney will both be hitting the final battleground states very, very hard. we've got a look at some new polling in a few of these states, "the wall street journal"/nbc/marist poll shows the president with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a very small two-point edge in new hampshire. i'm joined by mark preston live in washington. mark, there's been a lot of talk about the president's handling of hurricane sandy and how it might affect this race. we get a glimpse of what americans think about this handling in a new poll by abc/"washington post." 78% of voters approve of the president's response, 44% say they approve of mitt romney's reaction. neither candidate is seeking to politicize this were tragedy overtly. but it really does beg the question, how could this affect this race? >> it certainly puts the president in the position of being a commander in chief and being the leader at the time of a crisis. and in many ways, he's gotten a lot of support of one of mitt romney's top surrogates, and that's chris c
, only days to go until the election. and both president obama and governor romney are criscrossing battleground states in the run up to next tuesday. the president picked up an endorsement from michael bloomberg. today on the campaign trail romney starts in wisconsin. then both the president and romney make appearances in the all important toss up state of ohio. romney has two stops and the president has three. >>> also in our top stories this hour, the nationwide man hunt for a virginia man wanted for three pipe bomb attacks in staff ford county has ended in montana. lawrence stewart was captured yesterday following a brief pursuit with police. officers had to use spike strips to deflaet his tires. during the chase he threw a pipe bomb at the officers. he will be extradited back to virginia to face numerous charges. >> the district officer accused of shooting an unarmed suspect in the back will return to court today for a bond hearing. that suspect is now paralyzeed from the waist down. he was pulled over on september 6th on suspicion of driving a stolen motorcycle. he was cuffed
that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how does it help romney. >> criticize iffed he doesn't do his job. he's criticized if he does too much and make it look political. romney is going, i just have to not make it look political right now. >> romney has to focus on what he needs to do for the campaign. this isn't a political situation, this is an american situation, the storm is hurting americans, no matter what their party affiliation, the president has a responsibility as president of the united states, which means, communicate with your governors, you know, people are going to argue whether it hurts or helps him. what matters is the campaign and the final seven days leading into it is going to be how their ground game. charles: but the point is though, david, the president does look like he's doing that job and walking the fine line, being presidential, being attenti
in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
. >> reporter: good morning to you, jenna. tomorrow both president obama and governor romney will be in or around columbus, ohio. a testament to how important the state is. he is here in virginia was built on a site of the old meadow farms where the great secretariat was born. i will help you make your own analogis. whoever wins the commonwealth will win it by a nose. the governor pressing hard on economy today. "fox news poll" showing him with a nine point ad vage over the president. with mr. obama on the campaign trail governor romney is sharpening the contrast with the president who is best to bring back prosperity for the nation. >> do you want the four more years like the last four years? >> no!. >> you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? >> no!. >> you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> no!. >> you want four more years of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulati

to the obama presidency, and now that he and romney have come together in both the national and these tight swing state polls you see no lift at all in the obama camp pain, -- campaign. >> here's the argue. they make. he is still ahead in ohio and wisconsin, still ahead in what they call their fire wall. and even if you give romney all the swing states that they think they're going to win -- virginia, north carolina, florida -- that still only gets him to 248. throw the colorado, 257 electoral votes, needs 2 70 to win. >> couple things about the firewall. you have to question, is obama really ahead in ohio when everyone seems to acknowledge romney's big advantage among independents? this is true of a bunch of swing states. there's a question about who is really ahead. but the other issue is, this is a well-known incumbent late in the race. he is probably persuaded most of the people he is going persuade and his campaign speeches are telling you that. it's a fiercely partisan ideological message he is driving. he is not talking to independents. >> let's get a clip of that. we want to give yo
to shave my mustache. >> there is evidence to back up both and the romney campaign believes momentum. our own history has shown candidates, there are challengers, and the whole thing happens and the whole thing won't move. is that what we're seeing or is this a desperate attempt to what's going on? >> chuck, look at the poll numbers. there is serious tightening in these states, the lean democratic column for quite a while right now. but it is important to note that president obama actually leads still in all of them and, in fact, the margins we're often seeing look close to what john kerry carried those states in 2004 versus 2008. but overall this is something -- this is the recognition the power the super pacs are playing. the pro-romney restore in play. other super pacs going in there and that's opened up things a little bit. the biggest question, why didn't we see these moves months ago? >> let me ask you something, are you concerned -- look, the fact of the matter is and i've done some of the math, it is possible and it's not like an out there scenario, that mitt romney could win the
for mitt romney to gain ohio? >> well, the independent votes are important to both camps, thomas. but i believe that the independents will swing the president's way. this is a choice election. a choice between a president who has been working very hard over the last four years to steady this economy or for a governor that will lie to try to get the presidency. i think independent voters understand what their choice is and that choice is president barack obama. >> ohio state senator nina turner. as always, lovely to see you. thanks for your time. >> you too, thomas. >>> six days to go and america's big decision is coming our way pretty quickly. a big question, though, looming, is pennsylvania in play. the keystone state. both the campaigns are blanketing the state with ads in an effort to grab its 20 electoral votes. many political experts say if mitt romney can flip ohio, the keystone state could be next. >> by the way, i like coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. i want to get america and north america energy independent so we can create tho

. >> both democrats and republicans don't like it. and in my opinion, if mitt romney were to win the popular vote and barack obama were to win the electoral college vote, i don't think the electoral college would be disbanded. it would blow up in a fiery ball because both parties would have been lost out with the electoral college in the course of 12 years. >> what will they do? >> well, there would have to be a constitutional amendment. there's a plan to do an end run around the constitution something called the national popular vote plan and i don't want to take too long to explain i want but it's a way for states, interstate compact and a bunch of states have agreed to it saying that they will cast their electoral votes for the winner of the national popular vote regardless of how their state votes if enough states agree to this to equal the number of 270. i know it's confusing. if you have a dvr rewind it. it makes sense. >> the bottom line is how can you win the popular vote and still not be president of the united states? >> we're the only democracy on earth that uses this system and d
, to offer housing, medical and property assistance after both natural and man-made disasters. mitt romney suddenly yearned for that very thing after refusing to answer whether he favors doing away with fema 14 times, his campaign spun this answer. quote, i believe that fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will make sure that the fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission. that's different from what he said during a debate. >> some people say do it on a case by case basis but some people say maybe we're learning the lesson here, that states should take on more of that role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion and take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> in the wake of sandy, it seems those against fema's future may be having a change of heart. what do you think? is fema necessary? facebook.com/carolcnn. facebook.com/carolcnn. your re
between comforting and campaigning. on wednesday both president obama and governor mitt romney urged the country to try and come together. >> we're going to have a lot of work to do. i don't want anybody to feel that somehow this is all going to get cleaned up overnight. but what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> we also have full hearts because we know our fellow americans in some parts of our country are struggling through tough times with the hurricane that hit the atlantic coast. when there are challenges we come together and help one another and that help is needed now. >> both men head back out on the campaign trail today. the campaign trail. a poll shows mr. obama leading. mr. obama leading romney among aceely voters. in september that poll found the and new je critics tied. new jersey's governor is facing christi criticism from other hepublicans. theydnesday we saw christie join the president on his helicopter. stor aboen to what he said about i
of aimless bury, massachusetts. and in both cases mitt romney asked for federal assistance and federal aid. when the second disaster happened, romney and the state had money sitting in the until because people were evacuated. he refused to spend the state's money even though they had a surplus because he wanted to know what the federal government was going to give him first. he didn't think it was a moral hazard to wait for the federal government to write a check before he spent massachusetts's own money and he wound up refusing to help families in lower massachusetts who were really hurting and he refused to spend the state's money to help them. so what is the actual moral hazard here? >> steve, if it was at least a month left in the campaign i have no doubt team obama would have an ad out, at least a week or two from now, with this fema response, including disaster relief. everything would be in that ad. and but now with the election coming on tuesday, it's difficult to see how team obama cuts that ad and gets it out there in a way people don't think are overly exploiting the situation.
? >> sreenivasan: that's correct buckets for both the romney and obama campaigns the goal is to target voters sufficiently so they divide us into groups called buckets. the mobilization bucket for strong supporters of the candidate. the opposition bucket for those voting for the other guy. no need to spend resources on them. and the persuasion bucket for those valuable undecideds. and the campaigns create buckets within buckets. the more data they have, the more they can refine them. details, notes, that person tells me what their most important issue is, do i put that down? >> i would put that in the notes because we know next time when we're building an audience that, you know, joe schmo was a small business owner. you want to make sure he's a part of that audience. >> sreenivasan: the campaign collects even more data through a new organizing tool called dashboard which allows them to pinpoint not just potential voters but potential volunteers. the people in the mobilization bucket. >> this is our on-line field office and so dashboard is definitely both a social tool but also a reporting to
, the devastating east coast storm forced both candidates off the stump today. they focused, instead, on disaster relief, with mitt romney in ohio collecting canned foods and bottled water, and the president making a quick afternoon visit to red cross headquarters in washington. >> the most important msage i have for them is that america is is with you. we are standing behind you, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get back on your feet. sa ifill: romney also spoke of the need to help storm victims.e >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. >> ifill: the romney campaign announced he will resume campaigning tomorrow. the president will remain off the trail throughsu wednesday. dn spent most of today at the offering federal support to officials in the affected areas. among them, new jersey's republican governor chris christie, a romney supporter who nevertheless heaped praise on the president. >> i have to say thed administration, the president himself,

an impact on both president obama and mitt romney's campaigns. i want to welcome ken rogoff to our panel, harvard university professor of economics and public policy. we'll begin, sir, though, with christine romans. let's talk about how they crunch these numbers. >> the jobs report is actually two sprit surveys, unemployment rate comes from a survey of 60,000 households. the job creation number comes from a survey of 141,000 businesses. to get the unemployment rate, 200 census workers interview 60,000 households in person and over the phone. everyone over the age of 16 is classified as employed, unemp y unemployed or not in the labor force. from that then the government extrapolates the unemployment rate. job creation number comes from another sample, sample of 141,000 businesses. they tell the government how many workers they have on their payroll. like the household survey, the sample is meant to include the whole u.s., including offices, stores. both surveys look the a particular week or pay period usually around the 12th day of the month. this month it was the week of october 7th to
